Buddy Collette with Irene Kral — Buddy Collette Quintet Featuring Irene Kral ... CD 6.99

Wonderful work from both Buddy Collette and Irene Kral – initially recorded for the Navy Swings radio show in the early 60s, and finally presented here to the public on CD! The tracks all feature Buddy's early 60s quintet with Al Viola on guitar and Jack Wilson on piano – and Buddy himself is very strongly the lead soloist in the set, stepping away from some of the more tightly arranged modes of his albums of the 50s, and hitting some wonderfully spontaneous moments on flute, clarinet, tenor, and alto sax. Wilson's piano is as lovely and lyrical as on his best albums as a leader from the time, and provides perfect accompaniment to Kral on the album's vocal tracks – which comprised 6 of the CD's total 14 numbers. Kral tunes include "The Meaning Of The Blues", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", "Detour Ahead", and "It's A Wonderful World" – and instrumental tunes include "A Taste Of Fresh Air", "Hunt & Peck", "Emaline's Theme", "Road Trip", and "Soft Touch".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Memphis Jackson
Impulse (Japan), 1970. New Copy
One of the grooviest albums ever from the legendary Milt Jackson – an upbeat, almost funky set of soul jazz tracks – played with some great grooves on the bottom! Those trademark Jackson vibes are firmly in place, but the setting is quite different from the staid sounds of the MJQ ... CD

Epic/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1984. New Copy
An underappreciated soul set from George Duke for Epic – his Rendezvous from '84 – an engagement worth keeping! Given the mid 80s release date, you might be expecting a whole lot of programming and drum machine action – there's a bit of it, but this is a really lively set with ... CD

Progressive, 1980. New Copy
Strong later work by tenor sax legend Arnett Cobb – in a quartet session cut in New York in January of 1980 – sounding fresh and revitalized one of his final studio dates! Funky Butt actually isn't a left turn into a funk sound Cobb, but it is a pretty darn great showcase for his rich ... CD

Famous Door/Progressive, 1977. New Copy
One of the earliest albums as a leader from tenorist Scott Hamilton – definitely the young talent promised in the title, but already one with a very traditional sense of tone and timing! Hamilton's horn takes the lead, but gets strong support from Warren Vache on trumpet – whose well-cr ... CD

Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1965. New Copy
An excellent live outing from pianist Denny Zeitlin – recorded at the height of his early powers! The session's got a fresly new conception to piano-based jazz – a style that resonates nicely with the best 60s work of Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett, sharing some of the tenderness of the ... CD

Funky wonderfulness from Gary Bartz – one of his hip sets from the early 70s recorded with his NTU group – a very righteous blend of soul, jazz, and funky elements! Huber Eaves plays some great electric piano on the record – and so does Bartz, alongside his usual soprano and alto ... CD

Louisiana Slim
Prestige/Universal (Japan), 1971. New Copy
Sublime Hammond from the amazing Leon Spencer – heard here at the height of his younger years, when he was cooking up as much magic in the studio as Johnny Hammond or Charles Earland – and really stretching things out, in ways that take the jazz organ format much farther than the giants ... CD

For Losers
Impulse (Japan), 1969. New Copy
One of the grooviest albums from Archie Shepp's post-new thing years for Impulse – a nicely grooving session that mixes soul-based tracks with more righteous spiritual jazz moments! The approach here is a nicely varied – a laidback, collaborative spirit that's even quite different from ... CD

Dave Baby Cortez In Orbit
Roulette/Warner (Japan), 1966. New Copy
Smoking Hammond work from the young Dave Cortez – sounding grittier here than on some of his other albums of the time – less pop, and almost with a soul jazz vibe overall – especially given some of his snakey solos! The record may be the closest that Cortez ever came to sounding ... CD
